A ladder over water- published…

Lance Sheridan

The sea was low, floating veil of a sapphire sun
the shore away, plum; crimson white dunes and
clustering sand, ebbs the tide over the silver stone;
through the crimson stream i walked with wood

And nail. …soon as when minutes begun, i built
a ladder to climb to the sea; built with wood from
wrecks in rain and storm, melodiously the wind
sang, yet the forgotten weep in dusk depths of sea

Their bells toll in an unknown tongue, clanged as
i drove rusted, aging ships nails into languished
wood, swelled with salt; the washing waves, clouds
billowy like swaying trees, air thickened, my drifting

Breath, yet i did not tire; my sweat, languent running
drops into the sea, threads of my soul drifting to the
bottom; with calloused hands, a ladder over water so
that i may place a wreath for the fretted sailors drowned.
